Flock Cafe began life as a small family-run indie cafe in 2012, but has sustained itself quite well, still pulling in the crowds even after 3 years. Known for their all-day breakfast dishes, tasty cakes, and excellent coffee from Liberty, Flock Cafe may not have the best food or service, but it's refreshingly unpretentious and rustic.

Ambience at Flock Cafe is modern industrial, with clean, white walls and solid, blocky wooden furniture. The centerpiece is the counter where the tantalizing cakes are displayed behind glass, and the wonderful aroma of coffee permeates the air. Hipster quotes, lomo photographs, and pop culture art by local Singaporeans adorn the walls. Lighting is partly spotlights, partly natural sunlight, and partly low level fluorescent, which makes photography slightly difficult.

Service at Flock Cafe is partly self-service. Ordering and payment is done over the counter, and staff are able to make recommendations. Orders will be served to your table, but otherwise, staff interaction is minimal. You'll also typically have to work at attracting attention if you need anything else, as they aren't very observant.

Food at Flock Cafe is Western influenced, with the majority of the menu being all-day breakfast and dessert cakes. I actually prefer their cakes and coffee over the other items here, as I find it tends to be more tasty. Portions are nicely sized for individuals, and prices are typical of a cafe, budget about SGD $27 per person for a main course, drink, and dessert here.

The Latte (SGD $5.50) is deep and robust in flavour, and the coffee art is precisely executed and beautiful. The Mocha (SGD $6) is just as flavourful, but with a good amount of chocolate flavour, and is not too sweet. Coffee beans are sourced from Liberty, so you're assured of getting a good cuppa here!

The Chocolate Cake (SGD $6) is so good! Thick, rich, deep flavoured chocolate fudge, layered across a light, spongy, and moist chocolate cake... it doesn't get any simpler than this, or any tastier! Highly recommended!

The Orange Bundt Cake (SGD $6) is very good, with a bright, zesty orange flavour, and a light, spongy texture. The icing sugar on top cracks nicely like a crust, and coats the mouth in sweetness without being too cloying. Very good!

The Cheeky Eggs (SGD $16.90) were highly recommended, but perhaps were poorly executed when I sampled it. The poached eggs were perfect, with runny yolks, and the hollandaise sauce was good. But the shredded pork cheeks weren't as tender as I liked, and had an unpleasant gamey taste. A thumbs down from me.
